The Road. A place that inspires both composing music and listening to it.

In this episode of Mondo Jazz we'll focus on music about a road to Timbuktu, French, Italian and Brooklyn streets, being on the road and the road as a metaphor for a jazzist's necessary openness to the unexpected. Not to mention, jazz inspired by the soundtrack of Federico Fellini's "La Strada" [The street, in Italian].

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
